Skin Care Haul

Please enlarge to view ingredients.

Hi everyone! Sprouts (health food store) is having a 25% off sale until the 5th of May on all their beauty and vitamin products so I thought i'd pick up some new goodies; they actually have that awesome sale every 3 months. My previous HG line - Avalon Organics Vitamin C decided to go down the "New and improved" route so I needed new replacements. I got:

Kiss My Face Olive and Honey Soap

Burt's Bees Carrot Night Cream
ACURE Cell Stimulating Facial Mask

I used the soap all throughout my teen years and loved it so much. Its' ingredients are simple, exfoliating, effective, and non-drying. I highly, highly, highly, recommend it. The mask has wonderful ingredients so I could not resist picking it up. The night cream is heavy and like a balm; may not be for everyone but I have very very dry skin so lord knows I need it. *Whimpers*

Thanks for reading!

You Smell Divine Paper Hand Soap

Paper hand soap? YES! What a genius idea! One of the best idea ever in my opinion! So many times I've been to public restrooms that were out of soap, wish this had been around then. Not only does this smell delicious and herbal (they also have a Lemon scent) it leaves the hands very soft and moisturized, I was very surprised. The strips are super thin, portable (I keep the pack in my purse), and the perfect amount to wash both hands effectively. Customer service is phenomenal. My soap hadn't arrived a week after it got shipped out so I emailed them and Megan (total sweetheart in every sense of the word) responded the very same day saying she would call to see where my package was. Turns out it was lost and not only did she send out another package right away - she included an extra pack, so generous of her! I gave a pack to each on my sisters and mom, they all love it as well and also think it's a brilliant product. Cost is $7.49 for a pack of 3, each contains 25 strips. Divine is available here and Lemon is available here

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick- Mascate

Hi everyone! Mascate ($25) is a breath-taking, bold, true brick red. Very opaque and has no scent/flavor. Those of you who love mattes as much as I do would absolutely love the Pure Matte line. Not only does it last without drying my lips out as the day goes on, but once it eventually starts to fade hours later (after eating and drinking) it fades evenly and beautifully. Highly recommend not only this shade but just the line in general, the formula is stunning. Thanks for reading!

NARS Single Eye Shadow- Nepal

Nepal is a beautiful warm shimmery rose with a touch of brown. I thought I could easily dupe it and thought All That Glitters was the dupe, but it's actually quite unique in my huge collection of neutrals. Subtle enough as an everyday lid color, but yet works great as a crease shadow. I love NARS, always leaves me wanting more. 

Make Up For Ever Eye Shadow- Metallic Taupe 127

Welcome home Metallic Taupe, you will be happy here with my big taupe family. Sigh, this is one stunning taupe. It's pigmented, soft, and has a stunning satin pearly finish. I die, It's so striking! I wore this in the crease yesterday and I absolutely loved it. If you're searching for the perfect taupe or are just a taupe hoor like myself you need it. Thanks for reading!


Bobbi Brown Lip Color- Red

                  Bobbi Brown makes some amazing reds, need to put that out there; they are underrated in my opinion. 
 I love not only how rich, striking, and elegant Red (yes, that's the name) is, but also the finish: It's a cross between matte and creamy, not totally matte but not a full-blown cream either; just the perfect balance of both. Sephora describes it as a "fire engine red", I must say I do agree. This is an easy to wear no-fuss red that I think would look great on any skin tone. Sigh, I love.

NARS Pure Matte Lipstick- Vesuvio

        Sephora's site describes this as a "full-bodied red" and they are spot-on. It's one of the richest and sexiest reds I've come across, darn near perfect. I put this in my basket so fast after I swatched it I almost made a hole in it. It's matte but a long-lasting comfortable matte; not as dry as Ruby Woo. Definitely glad I added this to my collection.

I love you, NARS.
